Leo Alzinger - Weinbau Urban - Weinhof Waldschütz

Leo Alzinger is based in Unterloiben and is without doubt one of the true Wachau superstars.

This fine estate makes superlative single vineyard wines from premium mountain sites including Loibenberg, Steinertal, Hollerin and Liebenberg, with soil types including sandy loam and eroded primary rock.

The estate totals about 8 hectares and production is very small at just 5000 cases per year. Grape varieties are 55% Grüner Veltliner, 40% Riesling - there used to be Chardonnay but it is gone, we have some of the last worldwide and it is truly magical.

There are in fact two Leo Alzingers, Father and son, with Leo Junior having joined his Father in 2000 is now in charge. The third generation has a few years to go yet...

Whatever the generation, Leo Alzinger's wines are simply awesome. They are right up there with the very best the Wachau has to offer and deserve every bit of attention they get. The superstar status is well deserved, yet this remains a small family business embodying individuality and an unceasing quest for quality.

A mature Alzinger wine is a joy to imbibe, if somewhat hard to come by. Alzinger's wines are bottled quite late by Wachau standards, often in June or July, while the Wachau rules permit earlier release of Smaragd wines to the market on 1 May.


The Waldschütz family has vineyards in Kamptal and Wagram.

They make lovely and fresh wines, Grüner Veltliner and Riesling, but also rarer varieties, some ample Weissburgunder and very generous reds.

Their focus is on family, tradition and experience. The winery has been in its present state since 1992 and from day one they have committed themselves completely to their wines. There are 16 hectares of vineyards which are their pride and joy. Mostly on sunny slopes they are located in the two well known wine growing areas of Kamptal and Wagram.

Primary rock, sandy loam and gravely loess as well as deep loam-loess soils allow very fruity, noble wines of charming elegance. What earth and nature initiated is carefully finished by them, taking tradition and optimised wine culture in the cellar into consideration.

Anyone who came to our Austrian dinner or to the Austrian tasting could not fail to be impressed by young Ralph Waldschütz. He will be a star one day and you've met him here first!
